Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-5 -A group of dinosaurs traverses the country learning about the states, which are arranged alphabetically. The descriptions are laid out in panel format by twos, so when the book is open four states are shown on the spreads. Much of the text has repetitive dialogue such as one dinosaur mistaking the biggest city in the state or some landmark for the capital. This is a recurring theme, so that in a cartoon panel presenting facts, half of the dialogue is inaccurate. Moreover, it's not very entertaining. Most other comments are so generic ("This state has manufacturing") as to be totally useless. The pen-and-ink cartoon artwork is competent, but there's nothing here that a good color atlas wona't provide.-John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
